In an effort to not have the next two week destroy out lovely boards with 300 different "NCAA 08 SUX" or "NCAA ROXORZ!!!!1" threads I've made an official thread (like with all big releases - duh).

So... Enjoy. Talk. Complain. Praise. Be nice.

I'll have it in... an hour.

Did you have it DL-ing before you got my PM mor? I'd like to think I might have tuned the great mor in to it's release (not that you didn't know it would be leaked early.) But I'm guessing by the DL time you have left that you knew it was out before I PM'ed ya. Sucks for me to be stuck at the in-laws with SLOOOOOW net. Then again I can't burn it to a disc to play til I get home anyway.

LOL, now matter how many times I tried I couldn't make BYU champions in the first season on last years game unless I messed with their schedule to stick some powerhouses in there. Cracking the top 10 was the best I could do. I did win the Heisman with Beck several times though and always got an invite to the Big 10 the next season.

NCAA for the PS2 is the same game with a few new little things and I heard some of the rosters aren't accurate either. Kind of sucks that EA just gives up on last gen.

I thought the demo was unexciting too. But I think it had to do with lack of announcing, and the teams I was using. I had no interest in the players.

Anyways, I played the demo on 360 last night, on the big screen in the Main Hall it had highlight of the Akron Zips vs Kent State. I didn't know if it did that because it could tell my location, or if it was just a random selection of rivals playing. But I thought that was pretty awesome.

I gave a major complaint now that I've played the game a bit.

FIELD GOALS

I've personally witnessed the Gators and the Noles (comp controlled) kickers make 53+ yard field goals at angles several times a game. Infact, I haven't seen the computer miss a field goal yet.

They got some pro calibur kickers in this mofo. Not to mention I created a campus legend (going well, details in a bit) and in the simi-finals for the highschool playoffs, both my highschool and the opposing highschool hit 53+ yard field goals. WTF?

My second complaint is probably just me being me... But the auto photo feature (supposed to take big pictures to show off big plays) never seems to get the big play. Infact, it seems to get the dullness after the play is over. For example, I get a huge pass and break a tackle. Somehow, the auto picture is me on the floor pancaked by 2 defenders... love to show hat crap to my buddies :lol:

QuenteK25
07-15-2007, 02:27 PM
I noticed that auto photo feature being off in the demo as well. Didn't like it one bit. At least it is fast and over with quickly I guess.

As for the kickers, that sucks. Although the one field goal I had attempted against me by USC in the demo, they missed. About a 40 yarder and he pushed it right. I was shocked to see them miss.

I also found onside kicks to either be too easy or just a matter of me getting lucky on the demo. 2 onside kicks, both recovered by me.

The field goal thing was a big problem in last years too, all the times I had played a game against the computer I never saw them miss a field goal and was hoping they would fix but apparently they haven't.

Just got through playing my first game. Definitely looks and feels like 07, but that was to be expected IMO. I like the gang tackling and the fact that I actually made it through a game where no one was able to just go past a hoard of guys while performing some dumb animation.

My main complaint is that John Beck is no longer on BYU in this game...I guess that would have been asking too much :)

Well I played last night for about an hour with a butt load of pauses (kids) Made a Campus Legend, an Option QB. The High School Playoffs where pretty cool. and showing you after each game what Schools came out to scout you was pretty cool also. USC was at all my games but they wanted me as a 3rd string QB, and I was a 5Star Recruit. Ended up going to Arkansas cause they told me I would start. My other option at a Starting Role in the top 25 was for Boise State, but there was NO WAY I would play on blue field for 4 years. F that.

I had every Rank School want me and a butt load of unranked schools, but most of them where 2nd and 3rd string and one unranked team even offered me the 4th string job.. WTF? :lol:

I haven't played a game as Arkansas yet. Hope they like to pass the ball, or at least let me take off and run. LOL

I've only played one game so far.

I was West Virginia against Utah (I like to hand them a thorough spanking to break in the game). Beat them 35-14 on Heisman.

From here on out I'll play more realistic and challenging games, but Utah always has to get a butt kicking to open the season.

My HS lost in the semi-final game as my QB threw like 6 picks. He sucked bad(though it was my best game). I ended up as a 4 star recruit and only like 7 starting options(none too good). I picked SJSU, because I was under the impression they pass a lot(though I do wish you could review the school before committing).

but as far as gameplay goes.....wow....it's soo smooth on the 360 i was amazed...and I also like the Sim feature.....nothing worse than blowing someone out and still having to sit through the whole game....not that I think that will happen alot on all-ameriacan....

When I went through as QB I had my pick of schools, but didn't want to be QB.

I started a new one as WR this morning and about 90% of the time I'm run blocking.

got it today, made a balanced QB. I picked the University of Mia since its my favorite school. I started out 4th on the depth chart but by the 3rd game i was already starting:lol:

yeah re made my guy last night only played for about 20 mins. so I only got through 2 games.

Balanced QB > Option QB

first game first 2 completions where to the wrong team yeah first 2 passes were INT, but I made up for it with 6 TD passes.

next game was only 3 TD passes but 0 INT. And he can still run some.. No more 65 and 70 yd runs but I can still pull off 9-15 yrd runs which for me is all I really want from my QB

Woooo, WVU... good Mountaineers! I got told I'd be a starter... then on the depth chart I was #4... they lie. :boohoo:

Your guy a WR? I just ditched my option QB and started over with a WR (couldn't stand running the option that much and didn't like the audibles much either).

My WR was only offered a starting spot from one ranked school WVU, but also from BYU. I went against BYU (shhhh don't tell, they might kick me out) and went with WVU, but haven't played a game yet.

I made me a coverage FS. Became a 5 star player in HS and won the championship game. Got offers from all schools but none of the top 25 had starting jobs, so I went with the first one on the list which was Hawaii. 3-0 right now and I get 7-10 tkls a game but no ints yet.

How did you become 5-Star as a FS? I did that one too, but the opposition would just run short runs or throw short passes.

I think I had a high of 3 tackles one game...

So I'm playing dynasty. It's week 2, Akron at Ohio state. I'm down all game pretty much. 4th quarter around two minutes left (1 TO left), I drive all the way down to the 27(after my QB had been hurt in Q1-10 weeks out :cry:). I throw a corner to my TE...

TD!!!!!!

17 secs left or so, 21-17.

I go to kick off, they ****ing run it back.

Unbelievable. I saw like 3 clips, and of course the guy broke like 4 tackles too.

Just ****ing unbelievable.

I'm Supersim-ing in those situations from now on.

I was getting 5-6 takles a game. My offense was always scoring so I'd get 2-3 takles on just kickoffs alone. The opposition would throw a lot of medium passes and the running back always broke through to the secondary. I also had 2 forced fumbles. In the championship game, I had 2 ints and one ran back for a td.

One thing I really love, is if you have success running the ball, your linemen progressively become more motivated, and eventually become on fire like your runningback.

What's this motivation thing like? I've always hated the momentum thing because it's like you throw one interception at the start of a game against a top ranked team, and all of a sudden your team gives up. I thought it was too extreme. Hoepfully the momentum is balanced

It's momentum for individual players, and the better they are, and the more on fire they get the larger influence they have on the people around them.

Does it go haywire though, like if a receiver has full momentum, is he unstoppable?

Man, I'm doing a Dynasty with BYU on Heisman difficulty. I'm getting my crap handed to me the majority if the time. Luckily the new recruiting engine is a LOT easier to use. I was able to get BYU a 5 star recruit for the first time in any NCAA game I've played and 11 four star recruits, to make us the #10 recruiting class in the nation. So hopefully I can take the worst rated team to the top in a few seasons.

Few questions -

Recruiting - How is it this year in terms of difficulty. I play with SC most of the time, and when not, usually the Canes. With the bigger schools it's so darn easy to recruit in 07, I can get about 10 5 star players every year...is it harder this version with all the new features in recruiting?

Saving games for PS2 - can you save games in the middle of the game like in Madden? That pissed me off so much in 07 how you can't save and have to play a full game at once

WR is what I am. I'm on my first game, made my way up to WR #3. I haven't played since Wednesday though, I'm in Ft. Myers right now. Going from oak trees to palm trees is a big difference. :)

Man, every now and then what I don't like is that the QB doesn't know the route he's suppose to throw. I run a comeback and he throws a fly. Also how come you can't float the ball on fly routes, they all seem to go like bullet throws?

1 Percy Harvin (http://www.gatorzone.com/football/bios.php?year=2007&player_id=35) WR 5-11 187 SO 1L Virginia Beach, Va./Landstown

Number 1

http://www.gatorzone.com/football/bios.php?year=2007&player_id=35

He was #11 in High School so I guess he was trying to get a similar number, since Jarred Fayson all ready has 11

psh, what are you playin on freshman?

im talkin about the inability to hold a block on the oline, and the horrible play calling.

but the realism of franchise mode is sweet. i'm 7 games in with the trojans, and after just dusting off jiminy clausen and his band of gangly misfits, notre shame are 0-8. clausen got injured after 2 games and got a redshirt teehee..

but ya, i hate the sliders...heisman is killing me, and even on all-american with sliders against me, my running game in insanely good and my passing game is insanely bad...marc tyler is a beast though, no idea why they gave the dude 94 speed, but he's unstoppable...
